Post why you are interested in Qigong, how you found out about, and why you are interested in Qigong.November 16, 2018 at 4:10 pm #970Learn Qigong OnlineKeymaster
I learned first discovered Qigong at the Kung Fu Conservatory, where I was training in a very lethal style of kung fu, Fu Jow Pai. Since it was a very serious and hard style of kung fu, my teacher, the great Sifu Julian Duran, taught us Qigong to balance out the intensity from our martial arts training. It was important to him that we understand that even though we were training in a serious martial art, we needed to use our power wisely, have a clear mind, and make good decisions and not use our martial arts unwisely.
He learned Qigong and Kung Fu from his teacher, Wai Hong, and taught in a very traditional manner. This meant you learned only one small piece, and were required to practice just this one piece until you could show a complete understanding of the movement. This meant weeks, or months, of practicing one thing, over and over, until a deeper understanding was reached. At first it didn’t make sense, but then as you practiced, you realized that it takes a lot of time to truly understand Qigong and these movements. The brain thinks “Oh, I can do this movement now, I know it”. But the reality is you need to practice these movements over and over, in different mind sets, and battle through trying to understand the movement on a mental level and work on relaxing and not worrying about “knowing” or “not knowing”. Just simply practice the movement, be sincere, and have no external motives.
I’m so grateful to Sifu Duran for having taught me the foundations of Qigong in the traditional way.
It set me up for a lifetime of true practice. And this is what I hope to teach to everyone here.October 14, 2019 at 9:04 pm #1057
If you train with firearms even firearms disarming, have you ever practiced shoot-no shoot decision making, and have you ever used Simunition marking cartridges or Airsoft or other projectile training in the context of the above?October 15, 2019 at 4:08 pm #1058

How do you introduce initiative practices, decision making, and “go -no go” elements in practice, or do you basically have two people squaring off, knowing it is going to be a self defense encounter, and one attackers the other while the other defends?—NOOctober 17, 2019 at 1:17 pm #1061
rnrnThank you for the wonderful explanation. I have always only known that Onions and garlic are good for health and used to wonder why our tradition discourages use of these vegetables……this will convince some people who need evidence too.rnrnOctober 18, 2019 at 5:38 pm #1062
